(14 February 2019) NISO (National Information Standards Organization) and NFAIS (National Federation of Advanced Information Services) will merge this summer. The merger, which is contingent on NFAIS member approval, will consolidate two organizations that have a long history of success in bringing the community together to work toward improved distribution of content to scholars and researchers. The combined association will be more effective, vital, and influential within the community of publishers, libraries and technology partners who make up the membership.
Todd Carpenter, Executive Director of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) explained the merger further at the Scholarly Kitchen here.
